S - This grade is given primarily for credit through “Prior Learning Assessment and Alternative studies.” It reflects hours being earned toward graduation but has no bearing on the Student’s Grade Point Average (GPA).

I - Indicates that additional work must be done to receive a passing grade for the course or program.

N - This grade may be given to those who are not taking the course for credit. This grade may be changed to a standard letter grade if the appropriate additional fees are paid and all work for the course completed.

WP - This indicates that the student has officially withdrawn from a course and was passing at the time of withdrawal. A “WP” is not calculated as part of the student’s Grade Point average (GPA).

WF - This indicates that the student was officially withdrawn from a course and was failing at the time of withdrawal. No refund will be given for a WF.

Comments & News

I want to thank you for these courses.  In spite of my busy schedule right now, the teachings have given me a much-needed shot of faith and knowledge, and I am so grateful.  Some of the revelations of the instructors are incredibly profound.  I realize I required a Bible transfusion to help me through this time of productivity and warfare.  Thank you for helping to supply it.
